americans. in benghazi, libya, visiting the ruins, charlie what did you see? >> reporter: well, nora, ruins is a good way to describe it, because the place has been decimated. every single building, every single room has been torched, everything inside smashed to pieces or taken out. really, there would have been no place to hide in that compound. when you talk to libyans here you hear the same thing. everybody is heartbroken. they're saddened, shocked by what's happened. they say that they're ashamed of what's happened. they say the ambassador is a personal friend to the libyans. he was here for growth, to show there is a stable future forelibya, ironically, and they held a pro-american rally last night here in benghazi to reinforce those sentiments. so, you know, even days after this event, there is a sense of shock, of anger at those behind it, and the investigation now continues to find out who was behind these killings. the libyans tell me this was directed by al qaeda. this could not have come out of anger from the libyan people. >> charlie, will we see a coordination between the fbi
? >> reporter: good morning to you, charlie. fbi still hasn't made it to the crime scene in benghazi. secretary clinton will give a classified account of the attacks on the u.s. consulate in libya. witnesses tell cbs news that there was never an anti-american protest outside the consulate. instead they say it came under planned attack. that is in direct contradiction to the administration's account. that comes with complaints that the administration has not been forgetright. >> i'm just stunned and appalled that there wasn't better security for all of the american personnel at that consulate, given the high threat environment. >> now under law, state must establish a panel to investigate the attacks, report to congress within 60 days. today, secretary of state hillary clinton will outline what she is and is not willing to share. what's clear, charlie, is that the public won't get a detailed account of what happened until after the presidential election. >> margaret brennan, thank you. senior correspondent john miller, former assistant director of the fbi is with us. good morning. >> good mornin
on the u.s. koconsulate in benghazi. where are we with respect to what the secretary of state is saying to the libyans and what they're saying having to do with that awful and tragic death of the american ambassador? >> they're certainly not changing their message to the press, which is don't ask us to answer your questions. what's happening behind closed doors is that with messaging the hunt for chemical weapons and the hunt for some of those loose weapons, particularly those so-called man pads, the shoulder-mounted missiles that can take down airplanes. the u.s. has continued some of the security training, which is interesting, even though there are no americans in benghazi and they pulled back the staffing at the u.s. embassy in tripoli. they have continued some of their training in other locations outside of the country to help them secure weapons. >> the president's not meeting with any world leaders, although he met with 13. hillary clinton is doing all the work here this week. >> she is. he was taping "the view" while secretary clinton was across town meeting with the leaders. >>
, on what exactly happened in benghazi has recently changed. i wonder how that might impact this debate. >> i would be shocked if there wasn't some questioning from that either from the moderators or at least perhaps some attention drawn to it by mitt romney. this is a huge issue for the president, is his policy working in north africa, in the middle east? what happened there? did the administration tell the truth? if they didn't tell the truth, why didn't they tell the truth? i absolutely expect this to be part of the debate. the idea that the president is somehow not practiced to speak in public or engage in public debate baugs he hasn't had more than a few days in nevada to prepare is a little ridiculous. >> jonathan, with obama's lead widening in the polls, how important are these debates in your view for romney? more specifically, how important is the first debate? >> each of these debates is an opportunity for romney to try to shake up the race. if you look at the polling in pretty much every swing state right now, there are a couple of exceptions, missouri being one of them. almo
